Collings MF - Great Player's F-Style Mando For $2900

Photo for Ad 126851

Simple but stunning. Understated and elegant. This sunburst + tortoise shell, satin finish mando from Collings is a beauty. Great woody, open, hollow tone, and you can tell that the prior owner took care of it but played it a ton. There is some scuffing/rounding on the corners of the body points, a few light scratches on the back, and some light play wear scratching and a couple tiny dings on the top. After fixing the bridge position for intonation, I also realized there are marks from the prior, incorrect placement (visible in picture col14n below). The back of the neck has an almost dime-sized rough spot at the point of the v in first position from finger or capo wear and the finish is worn off the sides of the neck in the first fret area. The frets show considerable wear but the mando plays without buzzing or other noticeable effects. One tuner button screw is missing. Excellent original rectangle arched top case. I was really impressed by this mando. I can see why Collings mandos command the prices they do - these are extremely well-made, and the tone is remarkable.

$2900 shipped to continental US
